. the chair recognizes the gentlewoman from the district of columbia, ms. norton, for five minutes. ms. norton: thank you, madam speaker. as we end the 112th congress, we are faced with two crises. cliff ryecies and now a gun crisis, a mental health crisis that comes to us from newtown, connecticut. when you consider that this is a congress which has not been able to handle even modern issues much less crises, one begins to wonder whether we will evoke to what is required of any person who is a member of the united states congress. this morning, i come for something less than a crisis for the country, easier, much easier to solve. i am calling on the defense authorization conference committee to solve a simple noncrisis problem. a problem, though, that casts shame on our treatment of our active duty military, our veterans, and their families. thanks to chairman buck mckeon and ranking member adam smith, the defense authorization bill contains a simple provision. that provision says that when you raise the flags of the 50 states at military ceremonies, if you're raising or displaying the flags
minutes. ms. norton: thank you, mr. speaker. i thank the gentleman for yielding and for his work in helping to bring this bill to the floor today. i especially want to thank ranking member of the oversight and government reform committee, elijah cummings, who introduced the hatch act modernization act of 2012 in the house and to thank senator daniel akaka who introduced the bill in the senate. i want to especially thank chairman darrell issa who held very productive and revealing hearings on the hatch act during this session without which this bill could not have come to the floor today, and i thank our friends in the senate, senators joseph lieberman and susan collins, who had their own hearings to modernize the hatch act and who supported the d.c. provisions of this bill as well. these provisions per tape to the district of columbia only -- pertains to the district of columbia only. the act contains two of our long-time priority bills for the district. the district of columbia hatch act reform and the hatch act national capital regional parody act, giving d.c. full quality unde
the district of columbia, ms. norton, talk about the fact that we now are going to have recognition of flags in the district of columbia for our veterans. and there is inclusion in this conference report that deals with that issue. . flags are used to recognize their presence and of course veterans from the states across the country, the district of columbia hasn't. i'm pleased that ms. norton was able to have that issue addressed in the national defense authorization act conference report. and so this is a measure which i believe really transcends political party, there's great bipartisan support for it and it also covers lots of important issues that do come back to our nation's security. and so i believe, mr. speaker, that as we look again at those five most important words from my perspective in the middle of the preamble of the u.s. constitution, providing for the common defense, that we are doing that and exactly that with this measure. so i encourage my colleagues to support this conference -- the rule and the conference report that we will have and i believe it will be of great benef

. norton. >> thank you, mr. chairman. i have been listening closely. what you have been saying about cost estimation. there are difficulties and you have talked about the appeal process. we got so fed up with moneyline on the table during this casino recovery process, that's how we came up with this notion. once in arbitration were both parties really have to talk about the arbitrator, that is the final result. i'm not sure that there's anyway to get around it, as you said. people are expecting a different answer. i understand that there was a project. and i'm going to ask you about that first. but there was a power project for cost estimation -- a half million dollars approved or so. while some show cost estimation, others which would have been expedited, others chose to go with the old system and part of the difference was that if you use cost estimation, you give them flexibility. whereas with the present system, you pay for other time. how did that project tell you cost estimation is just a figment of our imagination what did you learn from the project? people did not use cost estimat
